Sound the Lunk Alarm, the cost of membership is going up! For the first time in over 25 years, Planet Fitness has announced they are raising fees for its members. According to CBS News reports that the changes will go into effect this summer.

Planet Fitness is one of the largest fitness club franchises in the world, who focuses more towards "occasional or first-time health club members", rather than the more experienced or hardcore gym goers.

One ongoing joke for years is that most members from the so-called Judgement Free Zone don't ever show up at all. However, there are many who do regularly visit their over two thousand locations in the U.S.
